    I am going to be holding a chicken swap on October 1st. There is plenty of space and will have some covered areas as well of shade. I live on a corner lot so parking will be allowed on the side streets. There shouldn't be any issues with parking either and there have been a number of occassions when horse trailers have been parked outside the front of my house, lol!

    Set up will begin at 8am. Swap begins at 9am and will go on till whenever

    Location:
    3625 Rollin'o Lane
    Apopka, FL 32703
    *Located very close to Turnpike/429 Exit Ramp

    All farm animals that are healthy are welcome! Plus anything that has to do with poultry, livestock, jams, jellies, soaps, goat milk, crafts, supplies, cages, etc.

    I will be advertising on Craigslist, local feed stores, BYC, TSC, and word of mouth to all my chicken friends [​IMG]

    Will update this post as more information becomes available.

    Quote:I talked to Lanatwo and she said she would have some that were newly hatched by then. She would try to make it, just uncertain right now of her schedule.

    Hello, and thanks for the warm invite to this swap. [​IMG]

    It's nice to see a swap, that is closer than 3 hours from me. I really wanted to go to Nava's swap, last week...but just couldn't make the 3 hour one way trip.

    I might be able to attend this swap. I will have to see what I have for sale, closer to the swap date....to say for sure.
    I currently have my 2 rare Brahma roos for sale. A partridge Brahma hen, a couple bantam cochin roos, a showgirl rooster, and a bunch of chicks in the brooders.

    I have subscribed to this thread, and will keep my eye on it. [​IMG]
